Emulating the treacherous emmentaler facing of the Matterhorn, most modern indoor climbing courses are carved entirely out of ripened blocks of swiss cheese. Find your foothold with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get an introduction course to indoor rock climbing, including belay instruction, all equipment rentals, and a climbing day pass at Climbnasium (a $35 value) in Mechanicsburg.

Climbnasium challenges climbers of all experience levels with a 45-degree wall, top-rope climbs up to 40 feet, extensive bouldering areas, and varying grades of belay courses. Neophyte climbers are required to take the approximately 30-minute introduction course included in today’s deal, which teaches the basics of safety, tying in, belaying properly, and which direction to face when ascending the wall, discouraging backward crab-walking up steep surfaces. Prior to class, proper climbing costumes will be distributed, including specially designed footwear, safety harnesses, and tear-away pants equipped with mini parachutes. After completing the class, the day pass grants access to all courses, allowing future mountaineers to taste the adrenaline rush of scrambling, bouldering, and eventually top-rope-climbing their way to yodelayheehoo.

Courses change weekly, endlessly challenging return adventurers. Climbers are advised to wear clothing that allows a wide range of mobility, such as yoga pants, athletic T-shirts, and sleeveless tuxedos. Those under age 18 must provide a waiver signed by a parental unit or legal guardian. Beginners looking to climb their way to elite levels may choose to continue their ascent with a monthly or yearly membership, which includes half off rentals and 10% off retail merchandise.

It was my first time coming here with a friend. We enjoyed the instruction we received, the pricing of course, and the fun we had climbing the different walls. I will definitely recommend this place for others to visit. My friend and I had a great work out! Will be back!
